Remember The Titans

                 There are some lessons in life you can only learn through experience. This movie is a representation of one of those lessons. In 1971 in Virginia two schools were forced to come together for the purpose of segregation. This is the true story of how those football players came together both on and off the field to make the season perfect.

Many times in dramas these are scenes that seem to be unnecessary. There are also minor characters in this same stories that are just these to move the story along. Remember The Titans has none of those scenes and not a single one of those characters. Each scene and character is essential in moving the plot along and answering the inevitable questions that enters the audiences mind. 

The acting is top notch and of excellent caliber. Every actor in this film is important. Every roll essential. Remember The Titans may just be the perfect football movie. It is made by Disney who rarely disappoints. You will walk away from this movie not only a happy viewer but a better person as well. 

There should be more movies like this one. It is perfect for the young and old alike. Even if you know nothing about football you will enjoy this flick. I highly recommend this movie be added to your video collection. You can watch it again and again and not grow tired of it’s heart warming message. This is surely and instant classic that like wine can only get better with age.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
